Do you want to walk the French Camino de Santiago route? Walk the last 100 kilometres from Sarria to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. You'll have an unforgettable 7 days.
Camino de Santiago in 7 Days
The route starts in the Galician town of Sarria, where we'll give you the basic instructions to set off on your own the next day. Make sure you put your feet up the night before, they've got a long 7 days ahead of them...
Day 2: Sarria - Portomarín (22 kilometres)
After breakfast, we'll pick up your luggage so you can begin the first stage of the last 111 kilometres of the Camino de Santiago, one of the most popular routes among those who undertake this pilgrimage.
You'll depart from Sarria and walk 22 kilometres until you reach Portomarín. On the walk, you'll pass through picturesque villages such as As Paredes, Barbadelo, Mercado da Serra, Leiman, Morgade and Vilachá. You'll fall in love with the green Galician landscape! When you arrive at Portomarín, you'll go straight to the hostel to rest.
Day 3: Portomarín - Palas de Rei (24 kilometres)
On the third day, you'll walk the stretch that goes from Portomarín to Palas de Rei. The almost 25-kilometre walk will be full of uphills, downhills and beautiful landscapes. You'll admire the Ligonde mountain range, which divides the Miño and Ulloa rivers, along with Romanesque churches, in particular, the famous 12th-century Gonzar church.
Day 4: Palas de Rei - Arzúa (29 kilometres)
After breakfast, you'll set off from Palas de Reit. This is the longest, hardest stage. In fact, it is commonly known as the "leg breaker". This is the stretch where those coming from the North Way and the Original Way meet those on the French Way. You'll also enter the province of La Coruña through the small village of O Coto.
Day 5: Arzúa - Pedrouzo (20 kilometres)
After a day of ups and downs comes a well-deserved relaxed stage. It'sbout 20 kilometres from Arzúa to Pedrouzo and this route is very close to the N-547 road, which makes it a little steep. You'll pass places such as Preguntoño, Salceda, A Brea and Santa Irene.
Day 6: Pedrouzo - Santiago de Compostela (20 kilometres)
The sixth day and the last stage - only 20 kilometres to go until you reach your destination! It'll be a relief knowing you're approaching the finish line, or perhaps a shame...
This is the most exciting stage as you'll walk the last stretch of Galician forests until you reach the Monte do Gozo hill, where you'll get the first panoramic view of Santiago de Compostela. From there, you'll begin the descent to the foot of the cathedral.
You'll enjoy your last breakfast in the morning and prepare to finish the Camino de Santiago. And remember: the important thing is not the goal, but the path.
On the first day, our Spanish and English speaking staff will provide you with all the necessary maps and road information. However, you should keep in mind that you walk the route on your own, without a guide.
